  1. Hi Scott, welcome to SGL
  2. Hi, welcome to SGL
  3. Agreed - the SLV is on a different level. The BST is ok at the price but can't match the SLV on image quality.
  4. Hi Tommy, welcome to SGL I hope you enjoy your new scope (weather permitting!)
  5. Hi Jason, welcome to SGL
  6. Hi Vance, welcome to SGL
  7. The added advantage of buying good eyepieces is you will keep them choose what scope you have either now or in the present
  8. Looks good! Welcome to SGL
  9. Hi, welcome to SGL
  10. That gives around 80° with vignetting. A 20mm T5 Nagler would be a better bet (27.4mm field stop), or, at a push, the 22mm T4 (31mm field stop).
  11. I too used an OMC-140 with a 2" back. The 42mm LVW I have did vignette; the baffle tube size of the OMC-140 is 32mm so not really suitable for that eyepiece. The baffle tube size on the C6 is 27mm. This means a 2" eyepiece with a field stop larger than 27mm would be unusable due to vignetting. I would say therefore a 2" diagonal and eyepieces would be wasting money.
  12. That's a good 'un alright. Very nice.

  15. Incredible resolution. That's a tough target at only 1.6"!
